Tampa Bay traffic?

I have a 335i coupe on order. I ordered it with a manual transmission. Is the traffic in Tampa bad enough that I would enjoy driving an automatic more? I can still switch the order, and I wouldn't mind driving an auto w/paddle shifters, but I'd prefer the manual. Just wondering what you thought.

I drive in Boston traffic on a regular basis in my 5-speed 330xi and it isn't too bad.. I guess Tampa will be fine. Thanks!

MT is fine, especially in a fine BMW I got AT this time around because of my commute but it depends on your drive. Traffic in general is fine; rush hour is rush hour regardless of where you are so that's where MT is a pain. I commute from Tampa to Clearwater daily BTW.
